For you Brits,


LONDON -- They're among the world's most elite fighting forces. But plagued with boots that melt in the sun, stifling uniforms and radios that go on the blink, some British soldiers are buying their own gear. "

I'm not sure how the upgraded SA-80 has held up, it was supposed to fix the jamming problems and others that have occurred in desert environments. There was lack of new-issue body-armour as well, one solider who I think took a bullet might have survived if he'd had the latest version. Some Americans have been using AKs for street patrols because of ammo shortages wasn't it? Don't know if the Brit forces would need or would be allowed to do so, they haven't been fighting as much and don't have such a logistics headache as the US.

Is that link out of date?
